Not OK? That’s OK.


I have to admit that I am not okay. I have a family member dying in ICU. Tears are coming. I am not getting into details as to why for confidentiality. Also, I will not release his name for the same reason. He has been there for more than 30 days. I found out 2 hours ago. So you can imagine the anger I am feeling about not being notified sooner. My mind feels like a race car going 1000 miles per hour. I can’t think. I’m in the state of confusion. I want him to live, but I don’t want him to suffer. The light that is at the end of the tunnel cannot be seen. All I know is that the light is still there. When it will be seen again is unknown.


There will be days where we will not be okay. Life can be very ugly. but it’s fragile. If there is any good news, it’s this: they are temporary storms. This is why giving up is not an option. So, if you’re not okay, that’s okay. The rain will soon dry up and a rainbow will form. That rainbow will sing, ”every little thing is gonna be alright.”
